WIP Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! (Okay, almost Wednesday here on the west coast.) I’ve made some progress on things this week, and have one commitment off the list (which of course means I added another..)


I finished up the last of the NuBees blocks for the month. I’ll hopefully have some time to work up a tutorial next week, assuming teaching doesn’t eat up all my time. I signed up to do an angel block for NuBees, and I was assigned Gillian which we both thought was really funny. I always make her whatever block I’m doing for the month anyway, so that made that easy! I also agreed to do a side swap with someone else, so I ended up with 6 blocks for the month. Fortunately these go together quickly.


Because NuBees was done, I decided I’d get started on the Mod Pop QAL hosted by Leanne at She Can Quilt. I decided that I could do this as long as the quilt was a Christmas present. The recipient I have in mind loves navy and grey, so I’ve been pulling fabrics and debating whether I want the navy or the grey to be the focal fabric. I finally cut out the pieces and laid them out to decide, and then photoshopped the block as a tile so I could see what a larger portion of the quilt might look like.

Navy on grey?
Or grey on navy?

Here they are repeated in photoshop:

What do you all think?

No Progress:

3×6 blocks – NuBee blocks were due first, so I wanted to finish them up before moving back to the 3×6 blocks.
Wedding Quilt for April – 1/4 of the pieces are cut out.
Dissertation Quilt – 3 of 30 blocks done.
Nyan Cat Quilt – still in planning stage.
